Well worth watching for John Thaw and Richard Briers!
7 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Death is Now My Neighbour is an excellent episode, featuring a wonderful performance from John Thaw, who never messed up anything he was in. Kevin Whately is perfect as Lewis, as is James Grout as Strange. I liked the performances of Judy Loe-Kate Beckinsale's mother-, John Schrapnel, Roger Allam, Holley Chant and Maggie Steed. But Richard Briers, with black dyed hair threatens to steal the show as the manipulative and truly nasty college master Sir Clixby Bream, who sleeps with Dennis's wife to get back at him for ruining his marriage. He doesn't quite, save one (Day of the Devil) Thaw's performance is every episode's main merit. The plot is complicated, and flawlessly told through an intelligent script. For me, the highlight was finding out Morse's first name, I loved Lewis's reaction, "you poor sod!" All in all, above all other things, watch for John Thaw and Richard Briers having fun. 10/10 Bethany Cox.
